Skyrim Gets Kinect Voice Support This Month
Bethesda is about to make shouting at your TV a little more useful by adding Kinect voice support to The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. With over 200 voice commands planned, you can use your Kinect not only for the game’s Dragon Shouts, but also for “Hotkey Equipping, Follower Commands, and all Menus (Items, Magic, Map, Barter, Container, Favorites, and Skills).” Bethesda is also adding voice commands for save and load game functionality, inventory sorting and management, menu access and “special map functions.” Set to launch as a free update for the Xbox 360 version of the game this month, Bethesda put together a preview video of some of the voice functionality.

In yet another teaser, the Skyrim creator also announced an upcoming set of Xbox 360 exclusive content:
Bethesda Game Studios has been hard at work on creating the first set of game add-ons that will be exclusive to the Xbox 360. This additional content will add new quests, locations, features, and much more to the world of Skyrim. Stay tuned for more details.
